Nimbus Dance Works announces the ninth year of the company's annual holiday tradition: Jersey City Nutcracker. Jersey City Nutcracker tells the story of two children's urban holiday adventure leading them through fantasy, adversity and celebration and teaching them lessons about friendship and community along the way. Choreographed and directed by Nimbus Artistic Director Samuel Pott, this adaption of Tchaikovsky's holiday classic is performed by a stand-out cast of professional dancers from Nimbus Dance Works joined by youth and adults from the community as they portray familiar characters such as the Sugar Plum Fairy, the Rat King, and Drosselmeyer - all with a Jersey City twist! Amidst colorful sets, costumes, a brightly adorned tree, youth and adults alike are touched by this tale of Christmas spirit.
2018 Jersey City Nutcracker performances will take place at Nimbus' downtown Jersey City intimate theatre and will involve youth performers drawn from schools and dance studios throughout Jersey City including: the School of Nimbus, Waterfront Montessori, PS 3, PS 16, French American Academy, PS 37, PS 41, MS 40. Surprise guest-performers make unforgettable cameo appearances too!
